15k is annual package divide by 12?
Less stressful actually, more freedom of time and with good travel opportunities.
15k is the basic. All in, would be around 18-19k.

Im not that guy but my two cents:

That’s cause you’re like comparing against the median. We tend to mix around those who are more comparable to ourselves in education and earning power. If you’re from a local uni then all your classmates are from local uni and there will be a tendency to “forget” about the rest of the world cause they aren’t in your life.

The “survive” part I guess is not meant to be taken literally but more figuratively. When you are the lowest earner in your social group and you get snubbed/looked down upon yes it does feel like we are just trying to “survive” in this dog eat dog world.

Yes it’s not sensitive to those struggling to put food on the table or worrying about their next meal, but please take things in context, this is salary.sg after all and most people here from my conversations tend to be minimally a second upper or first class looking for top tier opportunities.

I highly doubt earning 5k+ after exactly 2 years of graduating puts you as the lowest earner of your social group. As to your point on a dog eat dog world - yes, but that’s more on competition for higher statuses rather than survival. If OP belongs to the former, his/her post was poorly phrased.

Salary.SG is an anonymous forum and probably half the salaries reported here are either just hearsay or fake. That said, most of the more believable salaries discussed here (in this thread and in other posts) don’t seem to post towards mediocrity if one earns >5k after 2 years.

No I’m not. I’m a fresh grad currently drawing close to 5k (and I assume I would hit upwards of 6k after 2 years). But come on, complaining about survival and “money no enough” are two different things. Anyway, just wanted to throw out a piece of advice - money will never be enough. You’ll be extremely unhappy if you are constantly comparing. There will always be someone who will be earning more than you out there. Define what matters to you and don’t chase after money blindly. As someone who struggled with purpose and fell into the trap of incessant comparing in the past, I learned it the hard way that money isn’t everything. After a certain threshold (obviously not 5k, but you’ll easily hit 10k & up as you continue on with a similar trajectory), you’d value other things in life such as WLB, flexibility etc. Novelty (be it $/a higher status) wears off eventually.

Some regional roles can be quite challenging and not some may not like to travel for work.

Not the original poster. Nonetheless, agree with the latter part of your post that there will come a point in time where beyond a certain threshold, the marginal utility/satisfaction you get for each dollar you earn just plateau which is a lesson to all of us to embrace and cherish life, friendships and happiness while we're in the midst of pursuits for higher financial gains.

Anyways on the discussion of the guy with 5k+ after 2 years, like the previous poster mentioned, doubt it's intended to be taken literally and while the language may have rub off the wrong message to some people, there's no point brooding over it especially when used in the context of Salary.sg, an anonymous forum where practically everyone seems to be "making big bucks and flaunting their salaries" and the notion of "being sensitive to the marginalised/underprivileged society" is not so much prevalent or the focus here. Not that I am advocating we shouldn't (of course we should!) but hey the forum would not have been named "Salary.sg" otherwise.

Great work on your starting salary and projected growth in 2 years!
